about

“An authentic, well-written and deeply-felt portrait of the tragedy that is South Sudan.” – John Le Carré 

“I thought of everyone I loved as I ran. I thought of Michael… and of Billy. Of Bol and Manute. And then names began falling like tears around me…” 

Maria Marshall is a trainee doctor too haunted by the recent loss of her mother to study. She escapes to Africa, with dreams of making a difference, of losing herself in saving others. But when she arrives in the famine-stricken war zone of South Sudan, Maria quickly discovers the reality of Africa is far removed from her imaginings - poets carry Kalashnikovs, rebel commanders wear pink dressing gowns, and bombs fall from the sky like rain.

Can Maria truly make a difference? Trapped close to the frontlines in the remote desert village of Adek, the aid workers seem to be causing more trouble for the community they are there to help. The besieged village becomes an emotional pressure cooker as Maria grows closer to a fellow aid worker, Billy, and they seek comfort in one another. Then, just when Maria thinks she might be making a move away from her own personal sorrow, unimaginable tragedy strikes. 

Set against the devastating backdrop of South Sudan's battle for Independence, Something is Going to Fall Like Rain is the story of a country’s fight for freedom – and one woman's search for herself.
